It’s a program on the internet that is used as a search engine. One of many but the name intrigues me. Ask. I’ll admit I’ve always loved to ask. May I? Will you? Could we? Many of us had childhoods where we were encouraged not to ask. So when we grew up asking seemed like we were doing something wrong. To ask seemed, at least in my era, to question the authority or test the limits.
God speaks to my heart: Don’t hold back from asking Me. When you ask ME I am thoroughly equipped to answer and very willing. Your requests and questions convey to me that I AM your provider, sustainer and giver.
Oh beloved, ASK! You can ask God anything. He’s not going to be caught by surprise or not know what to say. Unlike the world that says sit down and shut up or don’t ask questions, God will always give you an answer. He delights in fellowship with you. Every time you ask Him to provide for you, He is able. Every time you need help making it through, He is willing. Every time you desire something that is impossible on your own, He loves to give good gifts to you. If God remains silent when you ask you can trust Him anyway. He is Sovereign and there will always be peace in the waiting.
There may be a deep desire of your heart that you wish you could ask God about. Today is your day to lay it all out before Him. You can ask Him to keep that dream alive or to remove it if it’s not from Him. You can ask for help, for resolution, for decisions. Your intercession for others is asking Him to intervene in the hearts of friends or loved ones. Be assured that your asking is always encouraged. Don’t ask little things. Ask for big things! Shoot for the moon. Ask Him for it! Why not? He’s your Father and it’s His good pleasure to give you the Kingdom! You are no longer a beggar with hopeless longing. Your destiny is to approach God with confidence! This is no mere confidence in yourself! It’s confidence in God! The more you read His Word, the more you accept His love, then the more you will have confidence before Him! Your appointment with God is ongoing and you never have to call ahead. You are His own and He delights in you!
God loves you and He’s for you! Run to His Presence this morning and praise Him for all He has already done. Have a talk with Him about your heart and your life. Watch as you begin to see more answers from this wonderful fellowship with Him as you live in the Power, confidence and light of His love!
